You really can't blame the coppers who regularly visit Second City Cop blog for being curious about the identity of the blog author. As police officers we are naturally inquisitive and enjoy sleuthing through details in order to confirm our own hunches and intuitions. Is he a white shirt? Does he work at HQ? Is he a beat officer who's been around the city working in different districts? Is he the guy who sits next to me at rollcall every day?
Well whoever he or she is - they do a heck of a job over there. Many people don't realize how much time it takes to put together a blog. If you want to stay topical then that requires a lot of time surfing, updating, reading emails, and of course - typing. If you want to really boil down to the details on a subject then add reading books, magazines and newspapers to the list. If you have a wife, children, a real job and court - then the amount of time you have to devote to blogging is restricted.
I know with this blog I get squeezed for time and just can't get computer time at home. Some nights I only have 30 minutes to do anything online. C'est la vie. And sometimes I just don't have anything to say. I seriously got burned out writing about illegal immigration. I've pretty much given up on that one - looks like Colorado is getting hammered by the MSM for passing laws that restrict illegals from getting social services and other welfare programs which the citizens pay for.
